Current Library Services

CONTACTLESS PICKUP services are now available.

You can place a request through the catalog at www.delcolibraries.org 

Remote holds have been reinstated, so the entire Delaware County Libraries collection is available for pickup here.

For the time being, pickup hours will be M/W/F, 2pm -6pm, and T/H, 10am - 2pm.

We are working hard to keep everyone safe, and we will be wearing masks at all times, washing our hands frequently, and practicing social distancing. To ensure the items you borrow are safe, we will be quarantining all returned items for at least 5 days, according to CDC guidelines. Items will not be checked in until after the quarantine period, but this will not result in any fines. Wearing a mask will be required at pickup, except for those exempted for a medical condition, or under two years of age.

We are also hoping to start welcoming our patrons back into our building soon, on a limited basis.  At that time and for as long as necessary for public health, the number of people in the building, the length of their visits, other services we can provide, and access to public computers will have to be limited. We know that many of our patrons are waiting for access to the same services they were used to, and we thank you for your patience as we move in that direction, while protecting everyone's health. We will be sharing more details about what to expect as we move in that direction.

The Delaware County Library System has pushed all due dates back to July 22 so you don’t need to rush to return your items.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding, and we can’t wait to begin sharing our collection with you again!
